What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
Definitely going to be playing Midland Hyur Lancer, why? Because of their noble background and strong will that comes with every great hero. On top of such I have a great fondness for Dragoons from final fantasy legacy, like Kain and Freya.
and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
Ul’dah, bar none. The desert is full of so much mystery and intrigue. And plus, arabian architecture, which I'm assuming the city is based on, is extremely gorgeous, and its underbelly, forboding.
